Drive Training

Investing in drive training improves your productivity!
Throughout the value chain, from pre-purchase to replacement and recycling of a drive, Advantage Control and ABB offer product, application and general technical training both in classrooms and over the Internet.

Advantage Control offer dedicated training facilities, and bespoke training is available to cover all aspects of ABB Drive product portfolio familiarisation.
Training typically comprises theoretical presentations and hands-on exercises.

Examples of training topics include product features, applications, installation and startup procedures, programming, PC tools, maintenance and fault finding.
Your Choice of training facilities

You can choose to undertake your training at our Downpatrick Office training facility which is easily accessible in County Down serving all of Ireland just 30 minutes from Belfast.


Onsite Training
You may wish to hold the training in house. This is available and we will provide all materials required.

Overview of Training
Our course objective is to introduce your engineers, both electrical and mechanical, to Variable Speed Drives technology and applications.
Our training is aimed at giving you an insight into how to get the best from the drives you have already on site. The training is focused around practical ‘hands on’ exercises where engineers become familiar with VSD’s using a demonstration case containing an ABB VSD and motor, and a simulated I/O control panel. This delivers a working knowledge of the ABB drive keypad and what to do under fault conditions.
